COMPACT MODELING CHAIR'S REPORT (S. Saha)
Samar reported that the Compact Modeling Committee was founded in 2001
and its mission is to promote interaction among compact model developers,
technology developers, and circuit designers and to objectively identify,
examine and evaluate current compact models for circuit simulations. Currently,
there are a total of eighteen committee members.
Future plans of the committee include a special issue of Transactions on
Electron Devices on ĎAdvanced Compact Models and 65-nm Modeling Challengesí.
Also, they plan to collaborate with foundries for model characterization.
Additionally, the committee plans to work on symposiums and workshops.
Lastly, the committee hopes to get approval for a future on-line journal
entitled Transactions on Applied Compact Modeling (T-ACM). They will
be re-submitting the application for approval in July of 2005. The
proposed journal contents are industry oriented, new applications of existing
models, and application of new industry standard models and will be a quarterly
